Perhaps more relevant to the terror-threat society of 2010/11 is this collaborative collection between puffer-jacket powerhouse Moncler and N.E.R.D.-member Pharrell Williams, also co-founder of Billionaire Boys Club/Ice Cream, sister brand to A Bathing Ape. Loving the “bullet proof vest” above, which I know may still be available at Colette, where it was launched in June last year, though I am unaware of prices etc. Seem to have caught on a little later than I would have hoped, but saw it in a magazine in Zurich earlier this month and after some speedy research I discovered that the project was released in late 2009, although it seems it didn’t catch on much. I’d love to get my hands on that vest- the shoulder pads look great along with the green camo lining by Keita Sugiura! I managed to find a matte black version on eBay, though it is slightly more than I hoped for (approx. £940, even though reduced from the original listing price of around £1,250)!
